Special site URL: Umbro has long focused on the development of items that support children to play soccer more safely and positively. We have developed shoes designed with different colors so that you can know where to kick and stop.
The “first woven jacket” to be released this time is a jumper with water-repellent and windproof functions, and is an outerwear that is worn to and from soccer and practice during the cold season. In addition to being confident that “I was able to wear it properly myself!” It is a jumper that is close to both children and parents, considering the above. Together with the “beginner’s woven pants” that can be worn as a set, it won the 16th Kids Design Award as an item that “reduces the burden of changing clothes for parents while fostering children’s sense of independence.”
three contact points
1. Zipper that is easy to close even for children who are not yet dexterous with their hands

It’s hard to pinch the small parts and put them in the narrow slot. There are many children who are not good at such fasteners. On the other hand, when the time for soccer school is approaching, it will be stressful for the child if the child cannot prepare by himself or, on the contrary, it takes a lot of time to try to do it by himself. The “Hajimejime Woven Jacket” has parts that assist in inserting the zipper to widen the slot, and the flash yellow color of the auxiliary parts is easy to recognize, so that children can smoothly close the zipper. We will support you so that you can
2. Ingenuity of child-friendly lining, lining does not protrude from cuffs and hem

Most outerwear for sports has a mesh lining so that even when you sweat, it won’t stick to your skin or the training clothes you’re wearing inside. However, this mesh can get caught on your hands and feet when you wear it, and if you force it through, it can pop out from the cuffs and hem. Not only is it difficult to wear and looks, but there is also a risk of injury. The “first woven jacket” has a mesh lining only in the minimum necessary areas (red areas) where sweat is likely to occur, such as around the shoulders and thighs, and eliminates lining such as the cuffs and hem. This reduces catching and popping out of the lining, and since the lining is removed from the beginning of the zipper, it is designed to prevent the zipper from biting into the lining.
3. Retroreflective mark for visibility on dark roads

It can be dark on the way to and from soccer school after school. In order to improve visibility, retroreflection is used in the logo and large design marks on the chest and thighs. The coolness of the glowing mark is also a favorite point that children want to wear. In addition, by adopting it in the zipper part of the calf of the pants, it is devised so that retroreflection is arranged in both the front and back directions when worn up and down.

Kids Design Award Jury Comments
Wear that is easy to put on and take off so that children can wear it themselves. The zippers with auxiliary functions and the structure that prevents the lining from getting caught help to foster
independence in children while reducing the burden of changing clothes for parents. Attention to detail is good, such as retroreflective marks that consider safety when going to and from clubs.

I have a child in the first grade of elementary school. I usually don’t like clothes with zippers. I want to wear it by myself soon, but I can’t wear it properly. In order for children to be able to do it on their own, I thought it would be good to eliminate obstacles when they wear it. We listened to the opinions and needs of mothers and fathers who have children in the company’s lower grades and children who play soccer, and created products that can solve the problems of both parents and children. I aimed for
I would be happy if there were more opportunities for parents to be happy about their child’s growth through soccer.
